FIFA announce five nominees for The Best Men’s Coach award 2022.
FIFA have revealed a five-man shortlist for The Best Men’s Coach award for 2022.
The Awards for this year will be determined based on performances from August 2021 until the end of the World Cup in December 2022.
Lionel Scaloni, the head coach of Argentina, has been nominated for the honour following their thrilling victory in Qatar. In addition, he led La Albiceleste to a 43-game winning streak, with their lone setback coming in the World Cup opener against Saudi Arabia.
The manager Scaloni defeated in the final, France’s Didier Deschamps, is also up for the award. The former defensive midfielder took home the award in 2018 following Les Bleus’ World Cup glory, while he has steered his country to three finals in their last four major tournaments. France also won the 2021 Nations League.
